    They were amazing! My husband is a big fan of tacos any night, I ask him what he wants for dinner, he says tacos. I've only ever done beef but we are trying to eat healthier and cut out red meat so I tried these and oh my, I'm so glad I did. These will be added to my dinner menu! And would also be great for lunch. I used corn and multigrain tortillas. I would suggest cutting the pieces of chicken up then seasoning them. You get more seasoned chicken that way. But overall amazing recipe and dish!

    The seasoning of the chicken is perfect. I sliced a chicken breast and then stirred in the seasoning. And I stir-fried in a pan. We didn't really like the cabbage. Maybe lettuce would be better. Ranch dressing would have been a great addition. Thanks RedVinoGirl :) Made for New Kids on the Block tag game

    A very refreshing change from the usual overly-loaded, messy taco. These are clean, crisp from the cabbage and very good! You're right about the cabbage, it's a MUST! I followed this recipe exactly with the exception of using flour tortillas instead of corn. Great lunch today, this will be a regular! Made for New Kids on the Block tag game.


I love to try new recipes and often try so many new recipes that I forget about all the great ones I've already made. My focus in cooking is to cook healthy and lower in fat without compromising the taste of the food.
